October 8, 2017   Ali   Fantastic Beasts 2 Comments Off on Next Fantastic Beasts film reveals new characters

Pottermore gives us some new casting news for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them … next November can’t come fast enough!

New characters and cast members have been announced for the new Fantastic Beasts story, and we suspect you may recognise a few of the names.

Nicolas Flamel, a character originally mentioned in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, will appear in the new Fantastic Beasts film. Flamel, who is known in the wizarding world as an alchemist who discovered the Elixir of Life (based on the real-life alchemist of the same name), will be played by actor Brontis Jodorowsky. Flamel joins a big list of new characters confirmed to feature in the film.

So far, only a few names have been revealed, but some surnames will be familiar to Harry Potter fans. Joining the cast will be Wolf Roth as a character called Spielman; Call the Midwife star Victoria Yeates as Bunty; Derek Riddell as Torquil Travers; Poppy Corby-Tuech as Rosier; and Cornell S John as Arnold Guzman. The names ‘Travers’ and ‘Rosier’ stand out in particular; these last names turn up in the Harry Potter series and belong to two Death Eaters who served Lord Voldemort.

Actor and comedian Jessica Williams, best known for her work on The Daily Show, and Fiona Glascott have also been cast in the film, but their roles haven’t been revealed.

The new names will be joining the central cast: Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein and Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski. Carmen Ejogo, who portrayed the no-nonsense President of MACUSA Seraphina Picquery in the first film, has now been confirmed to be returning too. And they certainly won’t be alone. Earlier this year, Pottermore confirmed that Jude Law would be joining the cast as Albus Dumbledore, who is set to ‘team up’ with Newt in order to take down Dark wizard Grindelwald – played by Johnny Depp.

Newt will also be joined by two characters connected to his past in the new film: his brother Theseus, played by Callum Turner; and Zoë Kravitz, who returns as Leta Lestrange, a mysterious figure from an old relationship who only appeared in a photograph in the first film.

Who knows what all these new characters are planning to get up to? We can’t wait to find out…

The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slated for release 16 November 2018.

September 17, 2017   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Family Comments Off on German translator admits stalking Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne with love letters in a five-year harassment campaign

Reading this article bothered me immensely. I can’t imagine how Eddie & Hannah felt.

A German translator bombarded Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne with love letters in a five year harrassment campaign after seeing him in a play, a court has heard.

Gaby Stieger, 49, repeatedly loitered outside the Oscar-winning actor’s house in Southwark, south London, and sent him love letters.

She pleaded guilty to stalking at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Redmayne described the distress it caused him and his family in a statement read to the court.

He said: “I always try to be open and friendly as support (from fans) is what gives me a career.

“I deeply regret having met Gaby Stieger – she harassed myself and my family intermittently over five years, leaving us distressed, unsafe and deeply unsettled.”

She would appear outside his house “out of nowhere – observing me and my family without us knowing”, he added.

“The safety of my family is everything to me and with her behaviour we can’t feel safe,” he wrote.

He also said her face would “contort with rage” when she spoke about his wife Hannah Bagshawe.

Stieger first met Redmayne, 35, after seeing him on stage at Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden in 2012.

The following year she began visiting the set while he was filming The Theory Of Everything and trying to get Redmayne to pose in a picture with her.

Stieger followed him and his wife to a carol service at Eton College in December 2013.

She can be seen staring at him in a photograph taken by a fan.

The mother-of-two, whose teenage daughters live in Germany, started sitting in a park opposite Redmayne’s house.

She also followed him to his local Tube station and on one occasion asked him for a hug.

Stieger sent Redmayne letters “expressing admiration and love”, prosecutor Sara Ashkboos said.

“She directly states she is in love with the complainant and asked him to reply,” she added.

In one of her letters Stieger wrote: “I know things about you.”

Redmayne also spotted her in the crowd in Leicester Square at the premiere of the latest Harry Potter film last year, which he had a lead role in.

He was so worried about the stalking that he contacted a solicitor and repeatedly told Stieger to leave him and his family alone.

In August 2017 Stieger approached Redmayne again outside his house, while he was with his baby daughter, and tried to touch his arm.

Stieger, of Colindale, north London, was released on conditional bail, banning her from contacting Redmayne or going to Southwark, and is due to be sentenced on Thursday afternoon.

July 4, 2017   Ali   Fantastic Beasts 2 Comments Off on ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel Rounds Out Cast, Major Plot Details Revealed

Fantastic Beasts sequel has started filming and information on the new cast and some plot points have been released … thanks to the Hollywood Reporter for this information!

The as-yet-untitled follow-up has started shooting in the U.K., with Jude Law among the new additions to the wizarding world.

Principal photography has now started on the as-yet-untitled sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first Harry Potter spinoff that grossed some $814 million for Warner Bros. last year.

And alongside the chief returnees of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, a host of additions have been made to the expanding wizarding world.

As previously announced, Jude Law has joined the cast as a young Albus Dumbledore, alongside Ezra Miller as Credence, Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, glimpsed in a moving photo as a woman from Newt’s past in the first, and Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander, Newt’s brother, a war hero and Auror.

Other names appearing include Claudia Kim (The Dark Tower, Avengers: Age of Ultron), a young woman introduced as an attraction at a wizarding circus, William Nadylam as a wizard named Yusuf Kama, Ingvar Sigurdsson as a bounty hunter, Olafur Darri Olafsson as Skender, who runs the circus, and Kevin Guthrie as Abernathy, the boss of the Magical Congress of the USA.

The screenplay — again written by J.K. Rowling after her debut in the first film — opens in 1927, a few months after Scamander helped to unveil and capture the infamous Grindelwald. However, the dark wizard was true to his word and escaped, gathering more followers to his cause. This time, it’s down to his former friend Albus Dumbledore to stop him, but with the help of former student Scamander.

The second in the five-part Fantastic Beasts series, being directed again by David Yates, is set to move the magic from New York to London and Paris, with some “surprising nods” to the Harry Potter films.

David Heyman, Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram are producing the film, with Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serving as executive producers. The creative teams are led by Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot, three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig, three-time BAFTA Award-winning editor Mark Day, four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Tim Burke, and Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Christian Manz.

The film is being shot at Warner Bros.’ Studios Leavesden in the U.K., home of all the Harry Potter films so far, and is slated for release on Nov. 16, 2018.

May 25, 2017   Ali   Early Man Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne’s ‘Early Man’ to Be Released by Lionsgate in North America

Early Man has been acquired by Lionsgate and Variety has all the details.

Lionsgate has acquired U.S. rights to Aardman Studios’ upcoming prehistoric comedy adventure “Early Man,” starring Eddie Redmayne.

Directed by Nick Park from a script by Mark Burton and John O’Farrell, the stop-motion movie is co-financed by the U.K.’s Aardman and France’s Studiocanal. It’s a re-team of the companies following 2015’s “Shaun the Sheep.” Lionsgate also handled the domestic distribution for “Shaun the Sheep.”

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer made the announcement during Thursday’s earnings call with Wall Street analysts. “Early Man” opens in the U.K. on Jan. 26 and in the U.S. on Feb. 16.

The film will be released by the Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label. Lionsgate will also represent licensing and merchandising for the film in the U.S.

Redmayne was the first cast member who boarded the toon, set at the dawn of time when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth. Tom Hiddleston is playing his adversary, Lord Nooth. Maisie Williams and Timothy Spall round out the cast.

The movie marks Park’s first feature film since 2005’s “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit,” which won the Academy Award for best animated film. Park also won three Oscars for his animated shorts “Creature Comforts,” “The Wrong Trousers,” and “A Close Shave.”

Studiocanal will distribute “Early Man” in the U.K., France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.

Lionsgate reported earnings on Thursday for its fourth quarter, which ended on March 31, that were above Wall Street expectations. Movie operations have been buoyed by its musical comedy-drama “La La Land,” which won six Academy Awards and grossed $443 million at the worldwide box office on a $30 million budget.

Motion picture segment revenues increased 7.3% to $654 million, driven by “La La Land,” “John Wick: Chapter 2,” and “The Shack.” Segment profit jumped to $52 million from $2.5 million as higher revenue more than offset operating expenses and marketing costs.
